What product are you trying to link them in?

Ancestry/Family Search or a software product on your computer?

You need to be a bit more specific.

you have your father on tree....do you have his father (your g/father) on tree?

If you have then put this brother as a son of g/father.

You have your mother... do you have her parents?  If so, put mother's sister on tree as their other daughter, then marry father's brother to mother's sister.

There are only two ways that individuals can be directly linked in any software I have tried, either as parent/child or as husband/wife. All other relationships are derived from those two, e.g. brother, cousin, aunt, etc.

If you don't  know the parents of the brothers (or the sisters) you will need to create them, using the surname which you presumably know plus something like 'unknown' as the given name which can be corrected later when you discover the actual name.

Maybe I am missing something blindingly obvious, or just being stupid, but Ancestry did this for me. I have two Eaton sisters marrying two Gahan brothers. When it draws the tree the lines cross at different heights, but it is very clear who is married to whom.

Just check that all both parental relationships and marital relationships are correct for each individual. The software will figure out where to place them if you get that right.

Thanks for all the replies, it doesnít work on any of the sites Ancestry, family search and so on. Still doesnít connect that my uncle and aunt are blood on both sides of my tree. Iíve put in both all the details of parents and marriages 🤔

If I understood your question,  the software program you are relying on is simply not able to cope with the double marriages ... .... so perhaps if you make new parents for the couple who are the brother / sister of your direct line,  ... give correct surnames and give the male 'duplicateentry_doubleblood_see xYZ' as first name  and similar for female,' .....see abc'  for her first name ....

And then in the notes/remarks, write explanation 'this record created in a software version that does NOT provide  adequately for the opportunity for the situation where two biological siblings marry and their respective spouses coincidentally are siblings to each other.    '

And then note the actual given  names of the relatives  :) in
A) the notes about them
B) the notes about the fake new parents
C) the two people who are your direct line who are their siblings

And then write long complaint to software supplier pointing out that double blood first cousins are not rare, and that long before software took over ,  hand drawn charts handled it with ease.
